MTA CEO brings things to a head in Rio
Pictured perched on the shoulder of the world-famous statue of Christ the Redeemer at the summit of Mount Corcovado in Rio de Janeiro, a helmeted MTA – Mobile Travel Agents CEO, Don Beattie.
In Brazil to attend the annual Belmond Travel Agency Advisory Board meeting, the MTA CEO was granted a very rare opportunity to be allowed to scale the 30-metre high statue via an internal staircase for a chance to view ‘Cidade Maravilhosa’ (the Marvellous City) 710 metres below.
London- based Belmond is a global collection of exceptional hotel and luxury travel adventures in some of the world’s most inspiring and enriching destinations.
MTA made Australian travel industry history in 2014 when it became the first-ever Australian travel agency group to be invited to have a representative join the Belmond Travel Agent Advisory Board.
